"Magnetic resonance imaging has proven to be the premier imaging technology of the last two decades, exceeding CT and ultrasound in its soft tissue contrast. Yet, most radiologists who rely on MRI do not have the knowledge of the fundamentals so important to achieving and maintaining high image quality.
" "With a focus on clinical images rather than mathematical equations, this book takes a practical approach to MR physics that gives you the depth of understanding necessary for increasing your knowledge and diagnostic effectiveness. The text walks you through the fundamentals of MRI using images from actual patient exams, making it especially accessible to beginners. From imaging basics and pulse sequences to contrast-enhanced MR angiography, spectroscopy, perfusion and diffusion, the book covers the topics that are most relevant in everyday practice."--BOOK JACKET.
